The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. In this way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every single Internet domain has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

If you use a Linux shared website hosting package from our us and you register a new domain address in the account or transfer an existing one from a different provider, you're going to be able to control its NS records easily using the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for many domains at the same time with several mouse clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it simple to handle your domain even if it is the first you've ever registered. It requires just a click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to direct a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with only a few clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of any provider that you would like the new NS records to forward to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered via Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with highly user-friendly interface, which will enable you to control your domain addresses easily even if you haven't used a web hosting account or a domain previously. Changing the NS records for each domain registered using our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are right or not as to direct that domain address to our cloud hosting platform is also fairly simple and requires as little as a few clicks. You will also be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domain addresses as a part of the free DNS management services which we offer you with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for each and every domain address which you accommodate in the semi-dedicated account, so if you provide services to third-parties and host their sites, using this feature is going to give you much more credibility as a business.
